|Last Saturday night was a time to get together with family and friends to say Bon Voyage to Shane Freeman. Guests had the opportunity to board Mushka and try to get a feel of how it might be on board a 35 foot yacht for many weeks at a time.|
|Sunday saw the running of our 4th summer series race and our annual trophy presentation lunch for the 2015/2016 season races.
For the race in the morning we had a fleet of 16 boats start on a mild to warm morning with light and variable winds forecast to strengthen from the NE late in the morning.

|Following the November General meeting, members and guests were introduced to solo sailor Shane Freeman, who's about to set out on the sailing adventure of a timetime.||
Stepping back to the Golden Age of solo sailing
In celebration of Sir Robin Knox-Johnston’s historic 1968/9 world first solo non-stop circumnavigation in the Sunday Times Golden Globe Yacht Race, a new Golden Globe Race will be staged to mark the 50th Anniversary of that epic, starting in 2018.
The aims and objectives of this Golden Globe Race are: To create a unique “RETRO” non-stop solo around the world yacht race, in the image of the original Sunday Times “Golden Globe” that draws sailors back to the age of “one sailor, one boat” facing the great oceans of the world.
Tuesday night should be very interesting.
See you all at the meeting.
